Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) criticized the Biden administration for continuing the kids in cages policy, which is now renamed as a migrant facility for children. 

The migrant facility is in Carrizo Springs, Texas, and will be used to hold up to 700 migrant children between the ages of 13 to 17.

Ocasio-Cortez doubled down on her criticism.

“It’s only 2 mos into this admin & our fraught, unjust immigration system will not transform in that time. That’s why bold reimagination is so impt. DHS shouldn’t exist, agencies should be reorganized, ICE gotta go, ban for-profit detention, create climate refugee status & more.”  

The White House press secretary, Jen Psaki, defended the migrant facility.

“It’s a temporary reopening during COVID-19, our intention is very much to close it, but we want to make sure we can follow COVID protocols.”

It’s unclear how long the Biden administration will keep the migrant facilities open.
